Kate Hills UK Manufacturers

Hello, I'm Kate

I’ve been passionate about UK manufacturing ever since I had my own recycled clothing company and micro-factory in the early '90s! After 20 years as a designer and buyer developing products all over the world, I launched Make it British to support creative business founders that want to make locally.

Over the last ten years, I've helped 1,000s of businesses to work with UK manufacturers. Now it's your turn!

Real People...Making in the UK!

See what some of our happy clients say about their experience of working with us...

Bombshell HQ | Getting products made in the UK

From overseas production with constant delivery issues...to local, flexible manufacturing partner with lead-times under a week.

"Without Kate I would not have found my amazing factory. I moved production of my dresses back to the UK four years ago and have never looked back.”

Posh Mucherz | Getting products made in the UK

An innovative product idea but no industry experience. Now working with UK manufacturers and the business is thriving because it's made locally.

“It has totally changed the way we think about manufacturing and most importantly our customers are actually buying from us because it's British-made”

Lacuna Child | Getting products made in the UK

Making the products themselves and working with local individuals meant they were struggling to keep up with demand. Working with a factory has proved to be cheaper and quicker than they ever dreamed possible.

"Kate has opened up channels in an instant. The relationship I’ve struck up with the manufacturing company she introduced me to is incredible. She has made my business come alive."

James Thursby | Getting products made in the UK

Working with a production consultant who outsourced overseas, causing delays and quality issues. Now connected directly to UK manufacturers with much more control over the brand's quality and production.

"A big win for me was finding a manufacturer. The other big win was learning how pricing strategies work in the industry.

I was a bit lost with James Thursby. I had a good idea in the beginning, then got messed around by people and kind of got stuck. Kate had a very good way of going 'this is what your brand's about, this is the direction you should go in'. And then from there it's actually managed to develop in a direction where it wasn't before."
